Arctic Air discussion & screening in Vancouver October 16

From Praxis/WGC:

In partnership with Praxis, the Writers Guild of Canada presents a discussion and screening with the screenwriters behind Arctic Air, moderated by Diane Wild (hey, that’s me!).

On Tuesday, October 16, series creator Ian Weir will join showrunner Bob Carney and screenwriter Sarah Dodd to provide insights into the vision and production of the CBC drama.

Arctic Air premiered to record numbers for a CBC drama in 2012. The broad based adventure series takes the excitement of shows like ICE PILOTS NWT and gives it a drama sheen. We’ll hear about the logistics of piloting a show set in Yellowknife from Vancouver, and how the show developed and changed in its first season.

When: Tuesday, October 16, 7-10 pm

Where: SFU Harbor Centre, Room 7000, 555 West Hastings St., Vancouver

Admission is free. Seating is first-come, first-served. Please arrive early to ensure a seat. For more information, email
